Beach Album...

In YESTERDAY'S post I told you I had another fun project to share that I made with the pillow box die. You're going to be amazed. :) Haha. Here it is...
How much fun! It's a little album! But can you see the pillow box yet?! No?! Well here you go...

Now can you?! Yup...it's the Summer Sun cardstock piece in the middle of the folder. I made an extended pillow box (click on this link if you need a reminder or didn't see it... http://designwithink.blogspot.com/2010/05/pillow-box-extended.html ) and then just folded it in half on the score line it already has to make 2 pockets to hold some pictures. Here is a picture of the whole album opened up...

I just used a velcro piece to hold the album closed. But when you open it up...you just pull on the 2 ribbon tags and these come out...
Two little tags with pictures on them! Tag #1...
And then Tag #2...
I LOVE this little mini album! I figured it was a perfect thing for my daughter to carry around (she LOVES mini things!) to remind her of the beach (one of her fave places to be!) while we aren't there! :) And yes...it's mini. Here it is next to a ruler so you can see...

Now you may be asking a few specifics at this point. Like where did the album cover come from?! Well another die for the Big Shot...of course! :) This is the "Bag With Scallops" die. Looks like this...



I just used the piece that is on the right side. Not the side pieces. And that made the cover for me...in a snap! I couldn't believe HOW PERFECT it all fit together! Also...the Designer Paper is from the Pink Flamingo paper pack in the main catalog. The colors are Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, and Summer Sun. Summer Sun is another color I am DEFINITELY going to miss when it retires in TWO MONTHS!!!!! Then the stamp set that I stamped "beach" with is in the new Mini catalog...the "Rough Type" one I used yesterday as well. And the flowers on the tags are made with the Boho Blossoms punch.
Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions!
